The capital future begins now

Welcome to Ecolocity!

We're a Transition Towns group based in the Metro DC area that wishes to support all efforts to build sustainable communities, but has a special focus on food issues.  We also run D.C.'s local currency, the Potomac.

Urgent action is required of all of us

Rapid changes are taking place. Whether or not we accept peak oil, global warming, and climate change, increasing gas and food prices are an undeniable reality. Economic decline, financial meltdown, and the housing crisis have come together in a perfect storm that challenges us to make better choices. Responses range from survivalist homesteaders, earthship bioneers, and ecovillages to Transition towns and eco-cities. Ecolocity welcomes all of these approaches and hopes to weave them into a vision for the DC Metro area.
